  • Dim Sum go go

    quality dimsum

    This is just about the best in NY, considering the usual subpar and filthy Chinatown restaurants that abound (no racial slurs here - I'm Chinese, from HK) Freshly made dimsum, maybe a little slow in coming.

    Subpar Dim Sum

    My review would not be as bad if the price had been cheaper. For GOOD dim sum, your meal should be very inexpensive. I ordered only 3 different dim sum and 1 small soup and my bill was $23. I did go at dinner but still- that was way too much and left a sour taste. Not to mention the food was mediocre at best. The duck soup did not taste like duck soup; it tasted like standard over salted chicken broth that any bad chinese take-out chain uses in their wonton soup that had bits of duck added to it the last second. The duck dumplings, turnip cakes and steamed beef balls were ok but nothing to rave about; and not worth the price. Also, the waiters were standing around doing nothing while the place was nearly empty. I had to ask for the bill and again for the change. For dim sum, go elsewhere.

    Was good then

    Those who don't understand the negativity obviously haven't witness the decline of quality (portion, too). If you like what you eat there now, you would have loved what they offered before. Many old timers like me who used to go there about once a week all agree this place ain't the same anymore. I've found a new place that reminds me of the old go-go but I won't share for I fear it might follow the same path. IMHO, Dim Sum Go Go is good for someone who needs dim sum training wheels. You will eventually realize that you've been jipped.

    Every bite delicious

    I agree! This is the best dim sum in NYC. Plus they serve dumplings inthe evening, and great entrees too (chicken with garlic stems, eggplant, chinese chives with walnuts and celery, shiitake with peas) I dont understand the negative reviews at all to be honest. I love this place.

    traditional, unique and freshest in nyc

    I'm not sure what the other reviewer from 9/30/2008 is talking about. This is the best dim sum in the city and I've only started to go with regularity in the last couple of months. The shrimp and other ingredients are the freshest I've tasted at almost any restaurant, let alone as Chinese-Cantonese-Dim Sum. The way they deliver the dim sum to your table further ensures its freshness. I really enjoy the fact that I don't have to wait around for a cart or go looking for a cart that has what I want. Once you check off your choices on the paper menu, the waiter delivers it to the kitchen where they steam all of your choices at one time, so that it comes to your table fresh, hot and steaming - not cold and damp like some dim sum. And it comes all at once so you're not eating one bite and waiting ten minutes for the next. While the dim sum menu is a thorough selection of traditional dim sum, there are also unique items like the duck dumpling which is lovely. The vegetarian dim sum menu is scrumptious, fresh and one-of-a-kind. There is also a "regular" menu with big plates of vegetables, noodles, rice, soup, specialties, etc. - and that menu is something you should definitely try. I have to sometimes force myself not to order the yummy dim sum because their regular menu has unique dishes that really do Cantonese cuisine justice. It's also not the kind of giant menu you find in most Chinese restaurants in Chinatown - it's pretty well considered.

    go go? NO NO!

    this must be an eatery catered to those who care much about appearance and trends(just because it's zagat rated, doesn't mean it's a must go!) because the food served here is below subpar. the food served to us were overcooked - the dumpling skins were gooey and stuck to the wax paper and left a starchy aftertaste in the tongue. the shrimps in the crepes were mushy which had a porridge like consistency leaving you to question... are we eating shrimp or not? authentic dim sum shouldn't cost you an arm and a leg. limbless, we hoped the food lived up to the frou frou price. sadly our high expectations were not met. the only thing that left us marveled was the presentation of the carrot spinach soup. it was lovely to look at, yes... but one can hardly taste the veggies. truthfully it was like gulping down a spoonful of salt. so if you plan on ordering the stuff, make sure to drink a gallon of water... unless you enjoy bloatedness...

    Not the same anymore..

    It once was a great place for fresh, creative, quality dim sum but it has turned into a tourist trap. Quality went down, portion has gotten significantly smaller, and the price went up.
